Objectives
AT THE END OF THE COURSE, THE STUDENT MUST DEMONSTRATE THAT HE HAS ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS:

- PRINCIPLES OF CHEMISTRY, REACTIVITY OF ELEMENTS AND THEIR COMPOUNDS
- PRINCIPLES OF WEIGHT-REACTION RALATIONS IN CHEMICAL REACTIONS
- DESCRIPTION OF THE MICROSCOPIC PROPERTIES OF ATOMS AND MOLECULES, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO ELECTRONIC CONFIGURATIONS, CHEMICAL BONDS AND MOLECULAR GEOMETRY
- PROPERTIES OF GASES, LIQUIDS, SOLIDS AND SOLUTIONS
- BASIC ELEMENTS OF TO PHASE EQUILIBRIUM AND WEAK CHEMICAL BONDS
- ELEMENTS OF HOMOGENEOUS AND HETEROGENEOUS CHEMICAL EQUILIBRIUM, WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO REACTIVITY OF ACIDS AND BASES.

THE MAIN SKILLS (I.E. THE ABILITY TO APPLY ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE) WILL BE:

- BALANCING REDOX REACTIONS AND CALCULATE THE MASS OF PRODUCTS;
- KNOWING THE STRUCTURE OF MATTER AND THE PRINCIPLES GOVERNING ITS TRANSFORMATIONS;
- UNDERSTANDING THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE AND CHEMICAL BONDS;
- ASSESSING THE INFLUENCE OF OPERATIONAL PARAMETERS (SUCH AS TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE) ON CHEMICAL REACTIONS;
- QUALITATIVELY CORRELATING THE PROPERTIES OF THE MATTER (MELTING AND BOILING TEMPERATURE, VAPOR PRESSURE, ETC.) WITH ITS STRUCTURE;
- WRITING THE STRUCTURE FORMULAS OF THE MAIN CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS AND IDENTIFYING THEIR MOLECULAR GEOMETRY;
- SOLVING PROBLEMS RELATED TO CHEMICAL EQUILIBRIUM;
- MAKING AN INTERVIEW ON TOPICS RELATED TO THE CORE ASPECTS OF THE DISCIPLINE BY USING APPROPRIATE SCIENTIFIC TERMINOLOGY, AND THE TOOLS OF MATHEMATICAL REPRESENTATION AND GRAPHICS OF THE MAIN CHEMICAL PHENOMENA.
Prerequisites
THE STUDENT MUST HAVE ACQUIRED THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE IN CHEMISTRY AND MATHEMATICS PROVIDED BY THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDY PROGRAMS.
Contents
THE TOPICS COVERED IN THE GENERAL AND INORGANIC CHEMISTRY EXAM ARE:

SECTION 1: THE BASICS OF CHEMISTRY, UNIT OF MEASUREMENT, DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS. CHEMICAL FORMULAS AND STOICHIOMETRIC COMPOSITION. CHEMICAL EQUATIONS AND STOICHIOMETRY OF REACTIONS. SOME TYPES OF CHEMICAL REACTIONS (3 CFU)

SECTION 2: PERIODIC TABLE, NOMENCLATURE, ATOMIC THEORIES. THE STRUCTURE OF ATOMS, QUANTUM NUMBERS, AND AUFBAU. ELECTRONIC CONFIGURATIONS (1 CFU)

SECTION 3: CHEMICAL BONDS: COVALENT BOND, IONIC BOND, METALLIC BOND, WEAK BONDS (2 CFU).

SECTION 4: STATES OF MATTER: GAS (KINETIC THEORY), LIQUIDS AND SOLIDS AND THEIR PROPERTIES. SOLUTIONS, COLLIGATIVE PROPERTIES (2 CFU).

SECTION 5: CHEMICAL EQUILIBRIUM: PRINCIPES, EQUILIBRIUM IN GAS PHASE, EQUILIBRIUM IN SOLUTION, WEAK ACIDS AND BASES, SOLUBILITY EQUILIBRIUM. (2 CFU).

Teaching Methods
CHEMISTRY COURSE INCLUDES 80 HOURS OF ASSISTED TEACHING (10 CFUS) DIVIDED INTO TWO THIRDS OF FRONTAL LESSONS AND ONE THIRD OF CLASSROOM EXERCISES. DURING THE EXERCISES, THE STUDENTS DIRECTLY APPLY WHAT THE PROFESSOR INTRODUCES DURING THE LESSON.
Verification of learning
THE ACHIEVING THE OBJECTIVES OF TEACHING IS CERTIFIED BY A FINAL EXAMINATION, MADE BY A WRITTEN TEST AND AN ORAL TEST (MINIMUM DISORDER 18/30):
1) THE WRITTEN TEST, NOT LESS THAN 60 MINUTES, IS NECESSARY FOR THE ACCES TO THE ORAL TEST. IT IS FINALIZED TO VERIFY THE CAPACITY TO CORRECTLY APPLY TO THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE AND THE CAPACITY TO COMPLY WITH THE PROBLEMS PROPOSED.
2) THE ORAL TEST IS A DISCUSSION ON THE THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL CONTENTS INDICATED IN THE PROGRAM AND IT IS FINALIZED TO ASSESS THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE AND CAPABILITY OF COMPREHENSION REACHED BY THE STUDENT.
THE MINIMUM QUOTATION FOR THE EXAM IS 18/30. THE LAUDE MAY BE ATTRIBUTED TO STUDENTS HAVING REACHED THE MAXIMUM VOTE OF 30/30 AND DEMONSTRATING A PARTICULAR AUTONOMY, KNOWLEDGE AND COMPETENCES.
